The tennis balls work well, but if the spouts are extra long, a suitably long piece of pool noodle also works and gives some support to the gutter.
When we ordered our CalMark cover, they asked us what kind of spouts we had and left a little extra room. If the cover is overall too wide, it can be hard to secure properly.
